For reasons unbeknown to me, no matter how much cream I plaster onto them from the middle of September through to pretty much the end of June my hands get as rough as a fisherman (and no the Norwegian hand cream doesn’t work, tried it), and they crack to the point of bleeding. And yes, I wear gloves, dry my hands properly, etc.
I’ve tried everything;
- Hand cream
- Olive oil and brown sugar
- Manuka Honey
The only one that came pretty close was the olive oil and brown sugar exfoliant mixture, followed by smothering my hands in olive oil. Maybe if I start it now, my hands won’t crack up!
The thing that struck me as I perused the hand cream aisle in the pharmacists was the notice on a lot of products “contains 10% urea”.
Now, isn’t urea a component of urine?
If so, maybe I should just try peeing on my hands?
Isn’t that a tasteful thought?
Seriously though, if anyone has any recommendations I’d be ever so grateful.
